Georgia School Considers Buying Assault Rifles

In case of mass shooting

|

A north Georgia school district is deciding whether to have small assault-weapon armories in its schools to be ready for a gunman attack.

Many Americans, of course, remain deeply disturbed about the prospect of arming school officials, and some studies have shown that armed school guards don't necessarily prevent or de-escalate school shootings. Yet what would have just a few years ago been a shocking plan to store semiautomatic assault carbines in the front office is now being considered seriously.
